Python from Zero to Data Analysis

Python from Zero to Data Analysis

Dates: 29 August - 2 September


Powered by HIFIS, IHRS BioSoft, HIDSS4Health and BIF-IGS offer a one-week online basic course on Python. The English-language course with an emphasis on live coding addresses novices to programming. The course will also teach all knowledge that will be required to participate in our course "Introduction to Statistics".

The course will introduce basic concepts of Python. Emphasis will be put on live coding (i.e. learners write their code along with the instructors) and overcoming the initial learning hurdles together. Participants will have ample opportunities to gain coding experience.

This workshop is conceptualized as a one-week event. It covers:

  • Introduction to the Python programming language
  • Introduction to NumPy and Pandas
  • Introduction to Seaborn and Matplotlib

Additionally, guided exercises will be offered to facilitate self-paced learning.

Enable the participants to write their own scripts in Python to automatically evaluate data and solve recurring or laborious tasks by automation.

Previous Knowledge
Neither prior knowledge nor experience in programming is needed.

Technical Requirements
Participants are asked to bring their own computer on which they have the necessary rights to install software.

All interested Ph.D. students can register. In case the course is overbooked, priority will be given to the members (fellows) of the three organizing schools. For registration and further information on the course, visit the course website.

Most of the IHRS BioSoft courses are open to all interested colleagues. If you participate in more than 75% of a course, you can receive a Certificate of Participation. To register for our newsletter, send us a short email with your name, your institute, and your position.

@ Aachen, Bonn, Cologne, Düsseldorf, and Jülich
